Now here’s a change in pace. In August I had the privilege of attending the International Saga Conference in Århus, Denmark. I really liked Denmark, and I hope that you’ll like the pictures that I took of it. I also really loved the conference, but I won’t be covering much of that. There was a lot discussed there, but not a lot for photographing. So I’ll show you the sites I saw.
Here’s the local cathedral.
And here’s what I think is the opera house.
I really liked this building, but I’m not sure what it is. It was right across the street from the hostel I stayed in.
I especially liked the decorative chimney tops.
As much as I love Iceland, one thing about it that doesn’t wear well is the prevalence of modern architecture. Århus doesn’t have this problem at all. It has lots of nicely preserved old buildings that come in lots of fun designs and colors. Here are just a few.
I especially like this doorway. It might actually be fairly new – I’m not sure.
I’m pleased to say that Århus, like San Antonio, has a River Walk.
Among the many fun aspects of the Saga Conference was that one of the local breweries made a special “Saga Brew” just for the occasion.
So there you go. I loved visiting Århus. Sadly, I’ve waited too long to tell you about it, and I’m short on things to say. The scenery was great to see, the conference was fun to attend, and I found Denmark to be one of the most friendly and enjoyable places I’ve ever visited. If given the opportunity, I’d return in a heartbeat.
